Minor in Writing Studies (Tracks: Creative Writing or Professional Communications)

 

The Writing Studies minor introduces students to the professional and applied possibilities of writing, allowing them to sharpen their writing skills, obtain a firm grounding in theory which they then apply in practice, consider the social and cultural subtexts of words on the page, and experience first-hand how writing is used in the community.  Any student who wants to fulfill the minor in writing studies should complete the necessary paperwork so the minor appears on their transcript.
